Delhi Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena wrote a letter to Arvind Kejriwal told why he should not attend the Singapore Summit

New Delhi. Delhi Lieutenant Governor Vinay Kumar Saxena has made a big allegation on CM Arvind Kejriwal. The Lieutenant Governor has said that in the recent past, DTC had made public the report regarding the purchase of 1000 low floor buses by the Delhi Government, which revealed the discrepancies. The Delhi government is alleged to have also allegedly violated the tender process for the purchase of DTC buses. And all this has been done under the leadership of Transport Minister Kailash Gehlot, after which the Kejriwal government has come under the scanner. According to the press note issued by the Lieutenant Governor, the Delhi government is accused of grossly violating the guidelines of the Central Vigilance Commission and the General Financial Rules during the purchase of DTC buses. The note further stated that several rules were allegedly violated before the procurement of DTC buses, even before the representations referred to in the tender process were placed before the Delhi Transport Corporation. But, at that time no one paid any attention to it.

It may be mentioned that in respect of procurement of buses by DTC, DTC had floated tender for the purchase of 1,000 buses and it was a single tender for supply of 1,000 BS-IV or latest buses. In the pre-bid, the quantity of 1,000 buses was divided into 400 BS-IV buses and 600 BS-VI buses, but the tender was still only one and the bidders bid for all these 1,000 buses of both types Could put Since the division of only two types of buses never changed the RFP into two separate tenders.

However, the Bid Adviser (DIMTS) and the Tender Committee of DTC did not properly evaluate the financial bids. The committee declared M/s Tata Motors Limited eligible for bidding for 600 BS-VI buses. M/s Tata Motors Limited had bid for 600 buses and hence its bid should have been rejected. After the rejection of Tata Motors, M/s JBM would have had only one bid and the examination of this tender would have taken a completely different level. However, it was further observed that DTC invited M/s JBM to negotiate for BS-IV buses based on Tata rates, which never made any bids for this category. This action of DTC was without any justification and the price negotiation with M/s JBM is in violation of GFR and CVC guidelines.
